Re: Adding Another Room

First find a friend whom has done this and have them help or see if a contractor will reduce the bill if you help.
Otherwise first learn how to take the tension off the garage door spring cable or risk getting killed.
Then get a permit from your local building department so when your done your legal & meet minimum standards of construction. Then pick up carpentry, electrical etc books at the library and read and learn. Then make you plans an start.
